Well the intel drives are 80GB and 160GB. I'd honestly recommend getting one of those before this one, although the 160GB is about $150 more.

If you *must* have 120GB, than thats the one I would recommend... but the intel drives are much better.

Ye well i need at least 100 GB for the main OS and all games,programs and all the stuff i download,it will be enough untuil i bue the caviar blue of 1TB

the proglem is that intel jumps from 80GB SSD to 160 GB SSD

The OCZ drives are good - considering they do the capacity you want you're best off going for one rather than spending more for the 160GB intel. Corsair, Crucial and Samsung are all worth a look too.

He's not lying, the Intel G2 SSDs are quite a bit faster than anything else on the market. Since you're planning on spending a lot on an SSD anyway, it would be a shame not to get one.

Sequential Access should be the least of your worries with an OS drive. You want IOPs. Nothing but IOPs.

The Intel G2 is the best, followed by the OCZ Vertex Turbo, followed by the OCZ Vertex.

Just got a 60GB Reactor and its quick, but I'd bet an Intel 80/160GB would be faster as an OS drive still.

Yes you can, and it's only worth it for certain apps. As an OS drive, it's definitely not worth it though.

Agility can beat Vertex now.

Vertex always use Samsung NAND. Agility use the cheapest avaliable NAND. Samsung hasn't improved their NAND in 8+ months. Agility are now using faster/cheaper Micron and Toshiba NAND (varies by batch).

Wish I knew this earlier, I just got a Vertex for my laptop and already sent in the rebate
